me and my family attended mass yesterday at the monasterio. there were a lot of devotees in the place but parking area was no problem for us for there was much space. a basilica is now under construction. i took note the directions on how to get to the monasterio for i have received e-mails before asking me about it. i don’t think there is an available public transportation as of now, but i am posting here the way we got there using our own family vehicle.
from sm city tarlac: there is a mercury drug after the mall building along mc-arthur highway make a left turn going to zamora street. turn left to tarlac state university (right side is mc donalds) along romulo boulevard. turn right when you see the total gas station (left side is agri gas station). you will pass by central luzon doctors hospital and tarlac chinese cemetery, then a small bridge (agana bridge). turn left at st. gerard school. along the way you will see signages of monasterio de tarlac and tarlac recreational park. when you reach the narrow lubigan bridge you are now at barangay lubigan and just go straight going up to the monasterio.
the monasterio is one place one can visit during visita iglesia (seven churches visitation) customary on holy week.
